Preview: Conquer China on the go in Dynasty Warriors Next

I assume I'm not alone in lacking the ability to tell the difference between Dynasty Warriors games (or at least, between the ones of a particular console generation). I've played, or watched friends play, DW6 and DW7, but from those experi...


Preview: Slicing samurai in Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus

In case you were wondering, that silver line in the right half of the header image above is Ryu Hayabusa's katana. It's a long samurai sword, and I couldn't fit all of it into the picture. That sleek blade is the last thing that many of Ryu...


Preview: Street Fighter X Tekken through a noob's eyes

A friend once told me he thought fighting games had cool characters. After he wiped the blood from his head, he quickly apologized to me and said, "Perhaps I should rethink that statement." Then miraculously, out of a nearby TV jumped Roger...


Preview: Mortal Kombat Vita has more ways to Finish Him

The last half of this generation has been extremely kind to fighting games. Street Fighter IV returned the series to form, newcomers joined the fray with BlazBlue, and my personal favorite fighting franchise experienced a much needed rebirt...


Preview: The roads are empty in Ridge Racer for PS Vita

Another PlayStation machine is about to launch, and with it comes another Ridge Racer, of course. The new installment for PlayStation Vita is somewhat of an oddity. I can't remember a time when my opinion of a game had ever been influenced ...


Little Deviants is cute and cuddly fun times

One of the launch titles accompanying the PlayStation Vita is Little Deviants, a cute, cuddly ensemble of mini-games that are designed to showcase the new handheld's features. Ranging from rear-touch functionality to Sixaxis controls, Littl...


Modnation Racers: Road Trip is better with touch controls

I am not a fan of motion gaming, waggle, touch screens, or other so-called "casual controls." It's not that I write them off the moment I see them. I just have yet to see a game that uses those control options to make the experience better ...


Preview: Hustle Kings (PlayStation Vita)

Developed by the small, UK based VooFoo Studio, Hustle Kings released on PlayStation Network in early 2010, receiving a positive review from us. Though I didn’t play that release, I’ve always been a bit of a pool fan and I have ...


Preview: Wipeout 2048

Oh happy days! The PlayStation Vita has an official launch date, and with that, a release date for its lineup of launch titles. We recently had the chance to play around with some of these including Wipeout 2048, the latest installment in S...


Hands-on: Rayman Origins

The Rayman Origins booth at the EB Games Expo on Australia's Gold Coast was an area I thought would be largely ignored. Given the hours people were waiting to play Battlefield 3 or merely watch a section of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I wa...


Hands-on with Virtua Tennis 4 on the PlayStation Vita

[Editor's note: Say hello to Keith Swiader! He's joined our New York preview coverage team and is starting off with some previews on upcoming Sega games. -- CTZ] Of the launch titles that will accompany the PlayStation Vita's release, Sega'...


Gravity Rush is my first must-own PlayStation Vita game

There's always that one game, the one that finally helps someone decide if they're really going to invest hundreds of dollars into a brand new gaming system. I've been hesitant about getting the PlayStation Vita, as nothing has really impr...


TGS: Popping it with Pop'n Music Portable 2's party mode

One of my favorite things about my local arcade is its Pop‘n Music cabinet. Slamming the machine's big, illuminated buttons to remixes of classic Konami themes is one of my favorite things to do on the weekend. Most gamers, however,...


TGS: Hands-on with Final Fantasy Type-0

I really f*cking loved the gameplay of Final Fantasy Type-0 on the PSP. I'm pretty much the opposite of a Final Fantasy player (role-playing games in general, really) largely because of the fighting mechanics. With Type-0, the combat and ex...


Music makers will dig PS Vita's Sound Shapes

Platformers?  Love 'em. You can't make enough. Platformers of any type appeal to the gamer in me. But upcoming PS Vita game Sound Shapes also speaks to the musician in me. It's slick platforming and musical creation. You can ...


E3: Check vs. Mate offers a new spin on Chess

TopWare Interactive showed me this strange little game, already released in Europe as "Battle vs. Chess." It's been renamed to "Check vs. Mate" for the North American release to avoid potential conflicts with Interplay's Battle Chess, which...


Preview: LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean 3DS

Unless you’ve been living in a cave on the moon with your fingers in your ears, you’re probably aware that LEGO has had a consistent presence in the video game world for the last decade. As someone who grew up playing with analo...


Preview: MLB 11 The Show

Sony’s competitor in the baseball space, 2K Sports’ Major League Baseball 2K franchise, has included analog-stick controls for years. But the folks at Sony San Diego, the studio behind the MLB The Show series, vowed not to imple...


Preview: Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive for PSP

Naruto fans rejoice, because Namco Bandai has another game headed your way. Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive is a PSP exclusive that’s coming out February 22. I got a chance to play it on Wednesday, and I thought I’d share my ...


TGS: Valkyria Chronicles 3 is all I hoped it would be

Valkyria Chronicles 2 was incredibly satisfying for this huge fan of the first title, which was a PS3 release. Some wrote off the sequel as it was a PSP-only game, but that didn't stop Sega from bringing the next game in the series back to ...


Hands-on: Battle vs. Chess is not a simple game of chess

Listen up nerds, it’s time to take off your robes and wizard hats for a second ‘cause there’s a new game in town, and it answers to the name of Battle vs. Chess. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering amidst a frie...


Cladun: This is an RPG is a new RPG by NIS

Cladun: This is an RPG -- known as Classic Dungeon in Japan -- is a quirky little hack and slash RPG made by the minds responsible for Disgaea. Think Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past mixed with the insane humor that NIS is pretty well k...


E3 10: The bar is raised for God of War: Ghost of Sparta

In 2008, when developer Ready at Dawn had finished with development on God of War: Chains of Olympus, it had publicly said it was done with PlayStation Portable development. To drive the point home, it even posted an image of all of its dev...


E3 10: Preview: Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep

I'll say right off that playing Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep seemed to bring back some of the magic I felt when playing the very first Kingdom Hearts game. That's to say that it feels kind of magical again. That was surprising to me as ...


Persona 3 Portable video preview in a Junpei hat

Before you click play know that I was not blessed with the correct type of face/head to wear a ballcap. It just doesn't work -- I've tried, especially when being beat down by the hot summer sun. But it's not worth it. I look stupid. That's...
